Black t-shirts look great with pretty much anything: jeans, leggings, maxi skirts. You can layer them over long sleeve shirts and fishnet tops, or underneath thin strap dresses or button down shirts. They also function as the perfect DIY project that you can test your hole-making, patch stitching, safety pin sticking, and bleach splattering skills on (alas, I shall save that for a later date). For this post I chose a bunch of black t-shirts that showcase my love for Edgar Allan Poe. Who’s your favorite writer/poet?
H&M is one of my go to places for affordable gothy pieces. Take a gander at these blouses which I think are befitting of a vampire queen, or even a spooky girl on her way to the office. I own Blouse A and it looks just as beautiful with a long black chiffon skirt as it does with tailored work pants. By the way, I can’t get enough of frilly blouses for #corpgoth looks.
Black skirts are an absolute must have in your alternative wardrobe. They are hands-down one of my favorite things to wear. They come in so many styles, shapes, and lengths. They’re comfortable, elegant, and extremely versatile. You can wear a long black skirt with a button up blouse and corset belt for a sophisticated vampire chic look, or pair it with combat boots and a graphic tee for a casual look. For this post, I decided to share some skirts that are on the more frilly and fancy side.
